Publisher's Summary

It wasn't easy, but I did it. It was a long struggle, but I made it. I found unhappiness in a peaceful world. You can too! Maybe you already have. In that case, this book will show you how you did it. And if you haven't, it will show you how you can do it. Moreover, no matter how unhappy, depressed, or anxious you are, by listening to this book you can become even more unhappy, more depressed, and more anxious. There is no limit to how unhappy you can be.

This takes down defenses

An unhappy person will have defenses to resist things that may make him happy. This book bring down the defenses. Mind then listens with an open mind. This is how I see this book. A good experience. A good book.

Buy this book! You will be in fits of laughter!

Where does How to Be Totally Unhappy in a Peaceful World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I generally like the Great Courses series, but this grabbed me after listening to a sample. Has to be one of the best things I have ever read! I wanted to write a satirical review, however I do not want to demean the book. It is simply amazing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator adds so much to this book, perfect casting!

What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the perfect narrator for this story. I actually think this is one of the few cases that the hardcopy was lose something by not being read aloud by this man.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There is so much, I particularly enjoyed the advice to get and stay in debt, how to alienate friend, how to be easily annoyed.

Any additional comments?

Buy this book! I purchased a copy for myself, after listening I then purchased another copy to gift to my parents. If laughter, true laughter, has eluded you for some time, buy this book. I recommend it highly.
